STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Swedish prosecutors released a man on Sunday held on suspicion of plotting an attack saying he was no longer a suspect.

Moder Mothama Magid, 22, was arrested on Thursday after a intense manhunt. He was suspected of having plotted in Stockholm to carry out an unspecified "terrorist crime". He had said he was innocent.

"The man is no longer a suspect," prosecutor Hans Ihrman said in a statement.
